International Festival

International Festival

The International Festival  features a colorful marketplace with booths representing the cultures of about 50 nations. Booths, staffed by UNC Charlotte international students and members of Charlotte's international community, feature art, crafts and costumes from each participating country. Many booths sell international food that culturally represents these countries as well.

Throughout the day, the music and dance of a variety of nations will be presented on indoor and outdoor stages. In addition, the festival, which is family-oriented, offers an assortment of entertainment, such as mimes and face painting designed specially for children.

The festival was one of the first events in the Charlotte area to recognize the region's growing international dimension. Attendance at the festival in previous years has been estimated at 20,000.
